Singapore iconic lone Casuarina Tree @ Upper Seletar Reservoir. Probably the island's most photographed tree after the demise of the beautiful solitary Albizia tree at Punggol Rd in 2015. This is a very popular location for many park visitors, especially wedding photographers and instagrammers. I was planning to do blue-hour long exposure shot but a couple of wedding photographers came after my arrival and "photobombed" the location. The photographer conducting the pre-wedding shoot was gracious to seek my understanding for the "intrusion". But I was more than delighted to facilitate him. I was hoping for human subject to grace the composition. After they left the location, I managed to shoot just six long exposure shots before dark clouds came and poured buckets. Really felt blessed, providence and nature worked their mysterious charm. Camera - Canon EOS 5DmkIV Lenses - Canon EF24-70mm F2.8L IS Shot in RAW, processed in Photoshop CC. Filters used - Nisi ND (10 stop and GND 3 stops)
